A variety of dollar levels or limits apply to contributions which may be made or benefits which may be earned under tax-qualified retirement plans. These are expressed as dollar amounts and are applied for a variety of purposes.

As happens late in each calendar year, the IRS has announced the limits for 2013. The more widely applicable changes are set out in the following table.
